Who’s in Your Cast?

If you love your job, I can almost guarantee that the people you work with are part of the reason. The same goes for if you hate your job.

The people we surround ourselves with on a daily basis have a huge effect on the life that we lead.  How are you going to fill in the roles around you with supporting characters that will help you achieve those goals?

Ask any actor or director and they’ll tell you that ninety percent of the success of any show is dependent upon the casting: finding the right players for the right roles so they can balance one another out and allow the star to shine. Remember: you’re the star, and you deserve to shine.

Focus on casting your show wisely.

This month we’re going to focus on how you can cast your show wisely and how to evaluate your current cast members. If you look at the 8-10 main characters that you surround yourself with on a weekly basis, are they supporting and encouraging you to pursue your dreams? Or are they belittling your goals, sabotaging you in your attempts to improve your show, and preventing you from developing your new character by making you feel like less than the star that you are?

You are the casting director for your life, and you have the right to give the healthy people more lines, and to cut back on the poisonous people’s stage time. If you are serious about living your life at Performance Level, than you need to take a serious look at the people that play a part in your show. If they aren’t making your show better, then they need to have fewer lines.

Casting your show wisely isn’t easy, especially when you feel like the roles have been cast without your consent or approval. But every morning you open your eyes is opening day for your life, and it’s never too late to decide the be the director and to begin building your dream cast. Start today.

By the way, as you read at the beginning of this post, you can use the same filter at work to not only get the dream life, but the dream job. If you hate your job and the people you work with, then either you have to change or they do.

Don’t just “like” it. SHARE IT!
